    Thibs

    I think we need a running Thibs thread. What has changed? What do you like? What do you not like? Here are some stats to start

    Thanks Ewing, was thinking the same thing, and he was actually my second choice, I had to stick to my LI roots and go with the St Anthony product lol....

    thibs has impressed so much, you can see each player that has returned has a different attitude and playing harder. I love they all start out we are going to play defense or sit, and we've seen Randle, DSJ, Knox playing defense, nothing like last year.

    So far so good for me, he keep Randle playing all star material ball, well that would be a huge + on his resume.

    Hey Frank hit all 4 three's , I want to see a duplicate of that tonight against Cleveland.

    You even have to love how he is utilizing Burks, this guy will either be a keeper or net us a first the way he's going.

    Payton just went from his worse game of his career to one of his best, so will he keep playing good basketball?

    I still want to see how he handles the roster when Rivers and IQ and DSJ (since he has played him) all return.

    Yeah way early but it feels like we have a real coach. A good coach. Miller seemed like a big improvement over Fizdale and now this feels like two steps forward at least. For those who like to tank I believe Thibs is real bad news for you.

    I love that Thibs keeps them accountable based on their effort more than performance. And he rewards players who put in effort and disciplines ones who don't. Unlike the past few years, he won't allow people to just play selfish me ball

    Tanking in NBA is so dumb in my opinion since it is lottery

    It's early. Four games into the season, the Knicks have piled up enough injuries to the point where they can only suit up 8 players total.

    The good news is the Knicks are .500 which is an achievement in itself.

    But as injuries take its toll, we'll see if the love for Thibs continues.

    Should try to win when in the position to win, but if your out of it, then lose.

    Good call on this thread.

    Here are my top 5 favorite things about Thibs:
    #1.) Rotation - Short and sweet
    #2.) Defense - could still be better but clearly improving
    #3.) Shot selection - get in paint or hit a 3
    #4.) Player development - Randle/RJ/Knox/Mitch all look much better than last season
    #5.) Accountability - Players that are playing great will get minutes and players that are making mistakes or playing poorly will fall out of the rotation.

    So far I couldn't be happier with Thibs.

    I disagree. The point is to make improvements as a team and get better. And if doing so equals winning even if you're playing for nothing, you should win. I truly believe tanking stunts player development as it gets your young guys into bad habits

    I actually think Mitch has looked worst but the team overall has looked better. But that's also cause last year Mitch gets a lot of points in garbage time cause we suck so bad anyways

    Mitch has arguably been our second best player. It's close between him and Burks.

    His fouls per 36 minutes:

    rookie season = 5.7 fouls

    last season = 4.9 fouls

    this season = 3.9 fouls

    The guy will always be a great rim runner / shot blocker and good rebounder. His biggest issue by far was staying on the court and I watch his fouls like a hawk. To be honest he's had some bad calls made against him. Right now he's averaging 28 minutes per game. He played over 30 minutes per game only 4x last year. He's played +30 minutes in each of the last two games (two wins). I'm thrilled my friend.

    For, me, there is not much to dislike. He is patient with the young guys, allowing a defensive system to evolve in a place where we haven't seen defense since Oakley played here, and obviously creating a locker room that geta along. The fact that Elfrid Payton was brutal then rewarded with confidence from Thibs shows me all I want to see at this juncture. It's nice to finally have a Coach that seems unfazed by a second have collapse against the Pacers, and who fist bumps the sky when Randle hits an off balance three. I am completely satisfied with the direction we are headed. That all starts with Coach and the front office. Better than watching Westbrook or Harden making 40 million to throw up 35 shots a night.
